This white bean salad recipe is great for lunch or dinner. Warm carrots sautéed with leeks, and white beans in a vinaigrette scented with fresh shredded basil. Comfort food comes in many packages, and this is one of them. Feeling fancy? Topping this with some toasted sliced almonds elevates this dish to dinner-party-serving-status, and brings that nutritional value up a few points.
Fun fact: Basil was used by Ancient Romans for its carminative effect (relieves gas), and has been purported to be helpful for several conditions across cultures from the Caribbean to the Mediterranean to the Far East.
Nutrition from this salad is similar to the French Lentil Salad, with just slightly less protein (~15 grams vs. 18 grams), still packing a meal-time punch.
We recommend pairing this White Bean Salad with our Dijon Salmon With Herbs .
